DrinkPrime is a subscription-based service for water purifiers that democratises access to clean, safe and healthy drinking water at an affordable cost.
Bengaluru, NFAPost: DrinkPrime, a Bengaluru-based tech-startup, has come out with an innovative water purifier that helps in providing clean, safe and healthy drinking water facilities to its customers across the country.
DrinkPrime is a smart customised water purifier based on input water quality. Unlike traditional water purifiers that are not connected to the internet, DrinkPrime is the Internet of Things (IoT) -enabled and is in sync with a subscriber’s DrinkPrime mobile app allowing them to monitor water purifier health at all times.
Led by Cofounder and CEO Vijender Reddy Muthyala and Cofounder and COO Manas Ranjan Hota, DrinkPrime has come up with a data-driven model and it blends water purifier subscription service along with sensors to track a household’s water input and consumption in real-time.
The customized four-stage filtration process gives access to clean drinking water based on input water quality while being charged based on the chosen subscription plan.
The main objective of DrinkPrime is to increase access to drinking water using technology and a disruptive business model to make owning a water purifier much more reasonable and convenient. Manas along with Vijender built a water purifier, with the Internet of Things (IoT) and sensors at different points which sends data for each purifier.
Using the data collected by these sensors and extensive sampling of water quality the team came up with a way of customising each purifier based on input water quality.
DrinkPrime utilises Artificial Intelligence (AI) to proactively schedule maintenance checks for its subscribers.
Speaking on the product, Cofounder and CEO Vijender Reddy Muthyala said since its inception, DrinkPrime has constantly focused on its mission to improve access to clean, safe and healthy drinking water to all.
“Our water purifier is in sync with the mobile app which provides insights on monitoring water purifier health in real-time and tracks water consumption. The IoT technology helps DrinkPrime to gauge and understand the customer’s mindset to provide safe and healthy drinking water at an affordable price,” said Cofounder and CEO Vijender Reddy Muthyala.
He also said DrinkPrime combines the convenience of a water purifier and the economics of bottled water into one product.
DrinkPrime Cofounder and COO Manas Ranjan Hota said also said more than 50% of India’s population doesn’t have access to clean, safe and healthy drinking water and DrinkPrime is focussed on solving this problem.
“Our approach has been validated by over 1 lakh users and their incredible loyalty has allowed us to grow rapidly,” said DrinkPrime Cofounder and COO Manas Ranjan Hota.
DrinkPrime is currently active in 7 cities across India – Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Delhi, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Gurgaon and Noida. DrinkPrime intends to significantly grow in the next few months. The company aims to extend operations to 16 new cities in the next 36 months.
The startup has bagged Forbes Asia 100 To Watch and Fast Company’s 10 Most Innovative Asia-Pacific Companies of 2021 titles.
